Every Friday, Turbo goes to what we call, Friday School. It is really an Options Program for Homeschoolers, called Homeschool Etc. They have a 3 1/2 hour day that includes, reading, writing, art, music, chemistry, P.E. etc. (ha!). They also venture out on field trips. Monday morning was one of those field trips. After dropping Tank off at Preschool, Turbo and I drove to Denver to meet up with other families. The Four Mile Historic Park is a unique park in that the House, The Four Mile House, is the oldest building in Denver, about 150 years old. Pioneers knew that when they stopped at the Four Mile house, it was exactly 4 miles to the intersection of Colfax and Broadway...West. There was also a 9 Mile House and a 12 Mile House, but unfortunately they have not survived. While on tour, Turbo got to see what pioneers experienced 150 years ago. For instance, he experienced chores such as sweeping the boardwalk, beating dirty rugs, and drawing water from the well to do the laundry. We also got to feed the chickens that were in the coop.
"I promise to do my best. To do my duty to God and my country. To help others. And to obey the law of the Pack" This year, Turbo is old enough to join Cub Scouts. He is PUMPED! But also that he gets to spend time with dad. My Tiger Scout

I've been trying to find something more interesting to AMP up our time in The Word. The Bible stories we have been reading to the boys at night are great, but in this day and age, technology seems to have an edge on our kids' attention spans. A friend showed me this link to different stories using LEGOS...freaking awesome! AND! There is a LEGO Bible out there too. Guess what the boys are getting for their bdays!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LvvHXaKZPE&feature=share&list=UL9LvvHXaKZPE
